Fly plaid


Fly print Tee - Smoking Lily, gift from Sheila
Buttonflower - MMD
Skirt - fei, thrifted, buttons changed
Vintage flats - etsy

I thought my new fly shirt would complement my new bug bites (kitties still have a minor case of fleas, we just treated - again). Bugs, bugs ,and more bugs is all I've been experiencing during this awful long summer. Usually we have a hard freeze in winter, which keeps the bug population under control, but I've been harassed by all manner of spider, beetle, flea and fruit fly since March. Most recently we had a big creepy brown spider chilling out on the wall above the tv. *shudder* For once I hope we have a cold winter. I only want my bugs in print.

Hubby picked out this outfit today. I just felt stumped after having a week full of pre-planned outfits and themes. I realized last minute I had a matching buttonflower for this skirt. Also I have no idea why I was making that face. This was the skirt I thrifted with Lynne. I loved the skirt - despised the buttons. A quick change to a mixed variety of brown buttons - much better.



In much more awesome news, here is Lynne, "Sherlock" and I going to see Frankenstein. Well part of us anyway. Head over the Lynne's blog by clicking the preview image to see the whole thing. Lynne commissioned this Fashion Doodle from me to show us off on the Red Carpet with our "date" for the play! It'll be a great memento for both of us, and was a really fun project for me.


Also I just got word yesterday that reader, Rachel, gave her husband and kids the commission I did for her back in May. She wanted a Steampunk Family Portrait to give her hubs for Father's day. It was met with rave reviews!

  1. Your hubs did a great job, I love this outfit! The plaid skirt and buttonflower match well and it looks great with the bug shirt! I also prefer my bugs in print - I have had my share of creepy crawlies in the house so far this year. Ick.

    Hope the kitty fleas clear up soon, no fun!

    1. Me too! It's hard keeping five cats flea-free. We keep trying and treating. Hopefully we'll have 'em licked soon. I know it's not fun for us or the little fuzzyheads.

  2. You are so talented it hurts. I LOVE your drawings. I wish I had half the talent that you do for sewing and art. So freaking cool! Sorry for your bug dilemma. I know how that goes. I prefer them only on clothing as well. Speaking of, this top is adorable and I love the buttonflower with it!

  4. I see you are wearing your newest skirt and top. Adorable together if I must say so. That flower button looks great with it.

    Also, your drawings are beautiful and the one of you and Lynne looks so close to what you two look in real life. You are so artistic and creative Megan. Congrats. Beautiful Job!!

  5. Love the top on you! It looks great with the new skirt.

    Your drawings are so awesome - great work! I treasure mine (hey, it's in every picture of me indoors!).

  6. Oh, I wish I could take that spider off your hands! I adore spiders. But it's hard enough keeping my one tarantula fed (I am horrible at capturing grasshoppers). So perhaps it's best. Oh, sorry, I'm horrible at comforting people that dislike bugs. Well, your fly print shirt is freakin' cute. As is that darling plaid skirt.

    May the force be with you.

  7. I thought from your expression that you possibly had a guest fly in the pic :)

    Hey, Jonathan, style me next!

    I just thought you should know your cat is attached to my butt right now. Seriously, she likes to sit either in my lap, or behind me in the computer chair when I blog (don't worry, the chair is way too big for both of us).

    The button switch turned out great! I just got the skirt you gave me back from the cleaners. Yep, your kitty barfed on it. Poor baby! Just the one time. No more tuna juice for her...for a while.

    I can't wait to get my print actually printed out and framed. I'ma put it right over my desk, and pray to the Almighty Sherlock when I get frustrated at work. I do not think Dear Hubby will let me hang it in the bedroom...

    1. It was probably the mockingbird. We have one that's been dive bombing the dog, the cars, us. Seriously nature cut it out!

    2. Also lolling at her becoming "my cat" when she's barfed on something. ;P

  10. The bugs are partying at my house too. Is it bad that I just leave the room when I see them and hope they magically disappear? I also make Chris pick them up and bring them outside. Skyla isn't a wimp like me...she likes to eat the ladybugs. :(

  12. Bugs are no fun, unless they're part of a print. I like the skirt!

  13. You're an amazing artist and I still have to watch "Sherlock", my man downloaded them! I;m a weirdo- I like spiders (but not mosquitos or hornets- ouch!) Very cute bug shirt and plaid!

  14. I can see why your art was met with rave reviews Your outfit is beautiful and I don't like bugs either. That's one good thing about Colorado as we have few bugs compared to Minnesota where I grew up.

  15. Sorry the creepy crawlers are giving you fits this year. Just today I heard that mosquitos in Minnesota were referred to as the state bird! I love the fly tee.
